Notch in My Straight Edge

Digital Image

I was unloading tools from my van this morning, and, thanks to Houston’s crappy, pot hole-filled streets and uneven pavement, the doors to the van would not stay open, and when one slammed shut, my $100 magnesium straight edge was knocked down. It hit the concrete curb and came up with this gouge.

I worry that this will snag a razor blade as I try to trim wallpaper. To be honest, I have been considering buying a new straight edge anyway, because I think this one is bowed, resulting in cuts that are off as much as 1/8″.
